AUSTIN, Texas - (KRT) - The man named in a disputed memo as exerting pressure to "sugar coat" President Bush's military record left the Texas Air National Guard a year and a half before the memo was supposedly written, his own service record shows.
An order obtained by The Dallas Morning News shows that Col. Walter "Buck" Staudt was honorably discharged on March 1, 1972. CBS News reported this week that a memo in which Staudt was described as interfering with officers' negative evaluations of Bush's service, was dated Aug. 18, 1973.
That added to mounting questions about the authenticity of documents that seem to suggest Bush sought special favors and did not fulfill his service.
Staudt, who lives in New Braunfels, Texas, did not return calls seeking comment. His discharge paper was among a packet of documents obtained by The Dallas Morning News from official sources during 1999 research into Bush's Guard record.

Nelson from The Simpsons: "HA-Ha!"
But he was in the Guard before he left it...
No, not quite, let's see:
But he left the Guard before he was in it after leaving it....
Hmm, this is tougher than I thought.
He had to report to duty in Cambodia...um....W stands for Where Was George?...no, quoting Teddy Kennedy doesn't help....
Y'all are letting facts get in the way of this story.
